debsecan-create-cron - Create cron entry for the Debian Security Analyzer


debsecan-create-cron suite

debsecan-create-cron --generic


debsecan-create-cron creates a cron entry for debsecan, the Debian security analyzer. The suite specifies the Debian release the system is running.

The cron entry runs hourly, but debsecan itself restricts actually processing to once a day. The minute the cron job runs is selected randomly, to reduce peak server load.

debsecan-create-cron --generic creates a generic cron entry which is does not include a suite argument. (This is only used to initialize debsecan without user interaction; you should specifiy the correct suite when invoking debsecan-create-cron manually, so that debsecan's output will contain additional information.)

If the cron entry is no longer marked as automatically generated, debsecan-create-cron will refuse to overwrite it.
